2017 NFL Draft first-round order

Getty Images

The 2016 season is over, and the order for the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft is set.

The entire draft order will be announced when compensatory picks are determined and awarded. The 2017 draft is April 27-29 in Philadelphia.

Three first-round picks have already been traded, two in trades involving the top of last year’s draft. The Browns will pick at No. 1 and also own the Eagles’ pick at No. 12. The Titans own the Rams’ pick at No. 5 and their own pick at No. 18, and the Eagles own the Vikings’ first-round pick at either No. 14 or No. 15 via the Sam Bradford trade last summer.

A coin flip will be held between the Colts and Eagles to determine pick Nos. 14 and 15 because the Colts and Vikings had the same record and their opponents had the same winning percentage. In the past, such coin flips have been held at the NFL Scouting Combine.

The full first-round draft order is below…

1. Cleveland
2. San Francisco
3. Chicago
4. Jacksonville
5. Tennessee (via the Rams)
6. New York Jets
7. Los Angeles Chargers
8. Carolina
9. Cincinnati
10. Buffalo
11. New Orleans
12. Cleveland (via the Eagles)
13. Arizona
14. OR 15. Indianapolis
14. OR 15. Philadelphia (via the Vikings)
16. Baltimore
17. Washington
18. Tennessee
19. Tampa Bay
20. Denver
21. Detroit
22. Miami
23. New York Giants
24. Oakland
25. Houston
26. Seattle
27. Kansas City
28. Dallas
29. Green Bay
30. Pittsburgh
31. Atlanta
32. New England

    The Browns might want to try trading down in both first round spots and using the scatter gun approach to drafting.

    Sorry Lamar Jackson… to the Browns with you!

    The next 2 top busts are their 1st round picks if they don’t trade down.

    The only time Cleveland is #1 – they should be proud!

    If I were a college player i’d go to the un-drafted tryouts with some other team.

    It’s nice of Roger to let my patriots keep their first round pick this year. What a generous soul!

    Cleveland should pick Myles Garrett

  11. Carr4Mack52 says: Feb 6, 2017 5:25 PM

    They clearly don’t need a QB, their QB has a statue in Texas for him.. Myles Garrett makes sense

  12. harrisonhits2 says: Feb 6, 2017 5:31 PM

    “Any predictions on Cleveland’s first pick?”

    If they don’t take Oline they’re making a big mistake. Worst Oline in the league this season gave up a whopping 138 QB hits and 68 sacks.

    If they don’t shore up that line in a big way any QB they take will be injured by the time the season is 1/4 of the way done and they’ll be playing backups again.

  13. seatownballers says: Feb 6, 2017 5:37 PM

    Just draft de Garrett, and qb Watson Cleveland. Quite trading when talent is needed. Build around those 2

  14. sportswart says: Feb 6, 2017 5:42 PM

    Every top prospect wakes up in a Cleveland nightmare until the draft is over…

  19. bigdaddy44 says: Feb 6, 2017 6:16 PM

    Cleveland trades Philly’s 1st round pick this year (12) and Philly’s 2nd round 2018 pick to New England for Garopolo. Some later round pick shuffling will be part of it. Cleveland will continue to screw up their drafting, and be near the top of the draft in 2019, 2020………Belichick will parlay those picks into a handful of players to restock the roster and keep New England playing in January and maybe February for the foreseeable future.

  20. truthbetold109 says: Feb 6, 2017 6:31 PM

    Remember when the vikings fans were saying that the pick they sent Philly in the Bradford trade would end up being 32?! Hilarious!!

    I guess trading back into the 1st round is unheard of.

    Don’t be surprised when the Vikings do. Also, delete your account when that happens.

    Every year the Pats have one of the last picks or no pick at all in the first round yet they are still dominant. Having very high picks don’t always pan out as you will get more prima donnas from the early picks. All show no go.

    You’ll get a 4th at very best, I’m sad to tell you. Who do you think the Browns GM is, Tim Ruskell?

    There is still time to find the mistake that was made in the 2016 draft where the Patriots had their 1st round pick stolen because cold weather deflates footballs.

    The NFL can just give the Patriots the first 2 picks in the 1st round of the 2017 draft. That will also be compensation for Brady missing 25% of the 2016 season.

    The NFL can also give the Patriots back their stolen 2017 4th round pick.

    You know, you may just have to give up a 4th round pick next year to make that happen.

    The Patriots pick up other teams 1st round picks 3 or 4 years later and get the most out of them for a reduced price.

    The Vikings passed on Dak Prescott to take Willie Beavers in the 4th round.

    Willie Beavers.

    Because they had little Teddy on the cusp of breaking out.

    Willie Beavers.

    Instead of Dak Prescott.

    Willie Beavers.

    ===================================
    Well, it worked out so well the last time, when the Vikings sent picks #40 and #108 for the last pick in the first round, and drafted a QB who throws for 14 TD’s a year, missed last season, and may miss the following as well.

    So last year, they traded a 1st and a 4th for a QB, and dropped from winning the division to 3rd place.

  29. oldcracker says: Feb 6, 2017 10:03 PM

    What are the Vikings going to do with Tiny Teddy Bridgewater next year?

    Can they work something out with the Browns? Multiple 2nd/3rd round picks?

  30. tonebones says: Feb 6, 2017 10:13 PM

    The draft is approaching so please take a look at the last two super bowl winning QBs, and remember them when you’re evaluating QBs. Neither can run. Neither can jump. Both are very smart. Both are the hardest workers on their teams. Go that? Ok, now forget about it and get your stop watches ready and your bench presses ready and go out and find a QB. At some point, they have to stop giving these teams the number one pick. It’s not helping.

  31. taintedsaints2009 says: Feb 7, 2017 12:33 AM

    it be nice if the same viking fans and same packer fans that clog the comments just go away for a few weeks. but they won’t. keep it up and continue to be the most hated fanbases in the NFL. it’s not even close. look at the most highly rated comments right now….the superbowl was yesterday and the number of comments for the top stories doesn’t even come close to the number of comments that some small story about the vikings or packers draws.

    -sincerely, an extremely embarrassed viking fan.

  32. dawgbite says: Feb 7, 2017 1:32 AM

    Browns likely to Draft Allen first overall. Look for a trade for Garappolo on March 9th. Cleveland likely to trade a 2nd round pick (most likely #33 overall) plus a conditional 3rd ( that can become a 2nd ) in 2018. That would be in line with past trades for backup QBs. 12 overall would be very rich for such an unknown.

  33. bobleblah says: Feb 7, 2017 1:41 AM

    At least this year Chip Kelly won’t be reaching for Fourth Round Talent with a First Round Pick.

  34. jlv3gem says: Feb 7, 2017 3:23 AM

    The Browns should trade off every asset on their roster -if that’s what you’d call em- to acquire as many draft picks as possible. Get creative and trade more of these picks, even the newly-acquired ones. Maybe even throw more players in trades as well to move up to better draft spots. Move Joe Thomas while he still has value for sure. Evaluate the draft talent to determine what trench positions are plentiful. Stockpile offensive and defensive lineman with this draft.

    Those positions require a lot of time and work to be successful in this league. Especially the gelling of offensive line squads. Build those trenches with top talent and let them play. Once they start to develop, then you proceed to bring in talent around them. WR’s in free agency, draft a QB. Hang on to your top draft pick every season by trading it to another team for their 1st rounder of the following season. Repeat until the QB you want is in a draft class.

    It’s a lot of work but the game is won in the trenches. That’s where your team should be built. That’s what the Browns could do.

    Or…. Build a time machine and hang on to Bill Belicheck

    ____________________________

    Just, because its possible, doesn’t make it smart, just like when they traded into the first Patterson, and now trading for Bridgewater looks like a bad trade again, Besides after a awful season from Treadwell and trading away for Bradford, they can’t afford to give up picks and sacrifice depth again, (especially at Oline) unless they want to hope they can hit gold with UDFAs or spending a bunch of FA again.

    So which additional first round pick will the Patriots get for Jimmy G?

    I’m looking at you Cleveland and Chicago…

    BB will give the Vikings a tackling sled and a bag of old footballs for Teddy. He needs someone to simulate Russell Wilson on the practice team.

    Pick 29th for the pack ten with busted player again. Oh, and they choke again too.

    =================================
    Depending on where they go in the 1st round, it will cost them a small fortune and we can only hope that happens.

    Not only will the Vikings further mortgage their future by trading away another boat load of draft picks, but given Spielman’s penchant for swinging and missing in the first round (Patterson, Treadslow, and Floyd anyone?), the Vikings will be doomed for years to come.

    Well, they are already doomed, the fans just don’t realize it yet.

    ////////////////////////

    Losing in the NFCC game can be called a choke, not as bad as Wide Left, but a choke (I guess.)

    But it’s not worse than “Eating It” year after year like the Vikings do.

  42. edavidberg says: Feb 7, 2017 12:23 PM

    Cleveland will take Garrett. I don’t see any of these QBs blowing them away.

    I think the Niners take Trubisky who I thought was much more impressive on tape than Kizer. (Of course that’s not necessarily Kizer’s fault, he played for a horrible coaching staff.)

    What the Bears do is anyone’s guess. If Trubisky is there I want them to take him. If he’s not I’m interested in trading down with the idea of taking one of the safeties (Adams, Hooker) or Reuben Foster a few picks later. I think Kizer could potentially be the pick but he would have to have some phenomenal workouts and I’m still not convinced he’s the guy to take.

    I see Deshaun Watson being a second round value with a team reaching on him in the middle first round. If he has great workouts I think he could go top 10 but not top 5.

    It’s going to be interesting what happens with Garappolo. I think many teams would be interested in trading their second rounder for him. I don’t think any teams are interested in trading a top 3 pick for him. So Cleveland may have the edge with the #12 pick as well as the first pick in the second round. Should be interesting who acquires him.

  43. ill42 says: Feb 7, 2017 12:31 PM

    Do people actually think the Pats will get a 1st rounder for Jimmy G? FYI: That will never happen

  44. fmc651 says: Feb 7, 2017 1:00 PM

    Look at the packer trolls talking smack because the Vikings do not have a first round pick. TT the best GM in the game according to packer fans. I am sure TT is in the market again for basketball player picked to play CB for the pack. As the one you drafted hasn’t panned out.

  45. h0metownzero says: Feb 7, 2017 1:02 PM

    It looks like the Viking draft will once again leave their faithful with nothing to hold onto other than their Willie Beavers.

  46. fmc651 says: Feb 7, 2017 2:43 PM

    Stellar you didn’t just lose the NFCCG. You were never in it. Your team was embarrassed. They were in the same spot as the Pats but from the QB on they didn’t have any heart to even make it look good. It was so bad the Falcons didn’t challenge a clear fumble. They let you score or it would have been 44-15.

  47. frank booth says: Feb 7, 2017 3:00 PM

    But if you were actually going to compare degrees of embarrassment, the Vikings would clearly win over anyone in the division. The Bears did exactly what they were expected to do. The Lions made the playoffs. Green Bay made it to the NFC Championship Game. The Vikings fans talked and talked, their team replaced their 14 TD QB with a guy who threw for 20 TD’s and completed 72% of his passes, which cost them a 1st and 4th round pick, and promptly dropped from division champ to 3rd place, with no opportunity to miss a kick in the playoffs.

    Jimmy G to Cleveland, 12th pick to NE, 32nd pick to Cleveland, 33rd pick to NE.
